Waylon Thornton and the Heavy Hands - Bottomed Out Bill (Enter The Coven)
Here it is, the new Waylon Thornton & The Heavy Hands album, Enter The Coven.
Not much to say about it, it’s been in the works for the past month or so, wrapped up the last song this morning.
I thought about holding onto it, “shopping it around” to labels and whatever, but I can’t sit on a project. That just seems stupid. If anyone wants to release it, they can hit me up, but I’m not going to hold it hostage while I wait for somebody to make their mind up.
If you like it, please share! I’ll be dubbing some tapes and putting them out under my tape label, Cool Tapes, so those will be online soon and available and shows.
There will also be an EP (or possibly another album?) following shortly since I ended up writing way more songs for this than I planned.

Waylon Thornton - Fu Manchu
Loner track from a while back. Kind of “dub”-ish, mostly just echo-y and out there. There’s some djembe in there.
Waylon Thornton and the Heavy Hands - Collecting Teeth
Some mind numbing, cave man, sewer dwelling synth punk thing I recorded this afternoon. Don’t think it’s going on the record, but I think it’s bizarre enough to share. Still experimenting around with synths, not sure where I’m going with it all.
It’s called “Collecting Teeth”.
Waylon Thornton and the Heavy Hands - Telepath (Enter The Coven)
Here’s a track from the new album, Enter The Coven.
What y’all think?
Wussup new followers? Holla.
Playing with BAZOOKA, PAINT FUMES, NEW COKE, and THEE HOLY GHOSTS this weekend in Gainesville. Definition of rager.
December 9th we’re playing with SOUTHERN CULTURE ON THE SKIDS. Totally freaking out about that. One of my favorite bands as a teenager.
Got a split 7” coming out in early 2013 with our best buds in THE EX-BOOGEYMEN. Features two tracks from us that are different from the norm, but should sound super slick on vinyl and featuring two tracks from the Boogeymen that were recorded in my studio and produced by moi.
Working on a weird doom/stoner/sludge project called DRACULA. Might have something ready for that sooner rather than later.
We got into a tussle with the mayor of Gainesville during Fest weekend. Apparently Jesse Jackson, Corinne Brown, and Congressman John Lewis booked a last minute “Get Out The Vote” rally at the downtown plaza, about 10 feet away from where we were playing and the mayor thought it was within his power to come tell us to stop playing in the most asshole fashion he could muster.
He told us that he had to yell because “you people only listen if someone is shouting at you.”
Fuck that shit. We shut him down.
Keep it weird.
